“Star Wars: Episode VIII” Has Finished Filming

“Star Wars: Episode VIII” has completed all of it’s filming and principal photography and now all that is left is the editing process; John Williams scoring the film and finally the addition of all of the special effects from Industrial Light And Magic.

That seemed to go really fast! Other than The Millennium Falcon and some long distance shots of sets and characters, we haven’t seen much that was leaked to the press but hopefully that will change this weekend.

“Star Wars Celebration” starts this Friday, July 15th! We are definitely getting a new trailer for “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” but I’m sure we will also learn some more about “Episode VIII”. I am hoping that we might get a teaser trailer, a title for the movie, some official photos and a synopsis.

“Star Wars: Episode VIII” opens December 15th, 2017!
